Chocolate Chip Banana Loaf – Tasty Lunchbox Treat!

I can never get the banana purchasing right in our house. It’s either feast or famine! Either we plow through a whole bunch in 2 days, or we eat maybe two bananas and the rest of the bunch slowly blackens in the fruit bowl. This week was one of the weeks where most of the bananas did not get eaten. I was on the hunt for a banana recipe to use. I came up with Chocolate Chip Banana Loaf… yummo!

This is a really versatile recipe as it is a perfect lunchbox filler, a tasty snack, or you can dress it up as a dessert with a bit of custard or ice cream. All options are welcomed in our household!

It’s a really easy recipe to pull together, so you can get the kids to help you bake! My little one thought squishing the bananas with a fork was HILARIOUS!
